Fashion Quiz: Who is the fiercest of them all?

A. Avril Lavigne, our favorite little married pop-punk foul-mouthed songstress, who just scored an exclusive design deal with Kohl's? Will it be Hot Topic meets Chanel? Or will it just be pink and black and Kelly Osbourne?

B. Karl Lagerfeld, who delivered the following zingers (among many more) in a nine-page Q&A cover story for Prestige Hong Kong:
    1. "When people talk about the good old days, I say to people, 'It's not the days that are old, it's you that's old.' I hate the good old days. What is important is that today is good."
    2. "I’m a very fascist person. If someone tells me something has to be like this, I’m not interested. I could never be an art director selecting other people’s work. I’m only interested in my own work. I’m a very superficial person, but that is good for what I’m doing."
    3. "I hate all children."
    4. "May I tell you something? I like today better than before. The late ’80s were an awful time. I like today, or maybe I like my life today. I’m much happier today than I was then."

(Bonus Points for identifying the most Karl-esque quote -- or, at least, what I think is!)

C. Christian Siriano, Project Runway's boy-genius, who I predict will win it all tonight (sorry, Jillian, I still heart you!) Keep in mind he told the Washington Post that yes, he really is like that: both on and off camera.
